BUSINESS OWNERS - Public Education & Outreach
To inform Municipal residents of the NPS pollution problem, the daily activities of residents that contribute to NPS pollution, and ways their activities can have a positive impact on NPS pollution.

Municipal governments have a responsibility to the community to inform them of the Stormwater Management Program, the courses of action being taken, and the potential impacts, problems and solutions to non-point source pollution. All permitted Municipalities have to develop an education program to inform their residents of these issues. By distributing education materials and conducting outreach efforts at municipally sponsored events local governments create understanding of the issues facing them among residents. Informed and aware residents are the best asset that local government will have to develop a successful Local Stormwater Management Program.
